"Buzz Bissinger, best known for his book FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS, shares the heartbreak of having a mentally handicapped son (now age 27). Bissinger movingly narrates his and Zach's story as they embark on a cross-country road trip. We hear Bissinger's painful attempts to bond with his son and Zach's sweetness, along with details of his obsessive habits. Bissinger's honesty is raw when he shares his frustrations about his son's limitations. This outstanding book is both a memoir and a guide for helping parents deal with challenging adult children. Hearing the author's own narration greatly enhances it. S.G.B. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
